Is there an idiosyncratically Jewish hermeneutic? Did such ever obtain in Jewish history? Is there an idiosyncratically Jewish theology? Did such ever obtain in Jewish history? Did the two ever obtain at once and together in Jewish history? The answer to all of these questions is: Yes. Come and explore -- with an idiosyncratically odd interpreter of things Jewish -- a special brief moment in the history of Jewish letters. One is speaking of roughly 75 CE to roughly 95 CE. Come and explore what was birthed in that time period. Come and explore how what was birthed in that time period came to be rejected and suppressed on the day of the coiled snake. Come and explore how, miraculously, what was rejected and suppressed ended up being re-inscribed in the final redaction of the Bavli, rendering that written production as the quintessential expression of what is idiosyncratically Jewish.

The Complete Owner Trilogy by Neal Asher, including The Departure, Zero Point, and Jupiter War. The Departure: Visible in the night sky the Argus Station, its twin smelting plants like glowing eyes, looks down on nightmare Earth. From Argus the Committee keep an oppressive control: citizens are watched by cams systems and political officers, it's a world inhabited by shepherds, reader guns, razor birds and the brutal Inspectorate with its white tiled cells and pain inducers. Soon the Committee will have the power to edit human minds, but not yet, twelve billion human being need to die before Earth can be stabilized, but by turning large portions of Earth into concentration camps this is achievable, especially when the Argus satellite laser network comes fully online . . . This is the world Alan Saul wakes to in his crate on the conveyor to the Calais incinerator. How he got there he does not know, but he does remember the pain and the face of his interrogator. Informed by Janus, through the hardware implanted in his skull, about the world as it is now Saul is determined to destroy it, just as soon as he has found out who he was, and killed his interrogator . . . Zero Point: Earth’s Zero Asset citizens no longer face extermination from orbit. Thanks to Alan Saul, the Committee’s network of control is a smoking ruin and its robotic enforcers lie dormant. But power abhors a vacuum and, scrambling from the wreckage, comes the ruthless Serene Galahad. She must act while the last vestiges of Committee infrastructure remain intact – and she has the means to ensure command is hers. On Mars, Var Delex fights for the survival of Antares Base, while the Argus Space Station hurls towards the red planet. And she knows whomever, or whatever, trashed Earth is still aboard. Var must save the base, while also dealing with the first signs of rebellion. And aboard Argus Station, Alan Saul’s mind has expanded into the local computer network. In the process, he uncovers the ghastly experiments of the Humanoid Unit Development, the possibility of eternal life, and a madman who may hold the keys to interstellar flight. But Earth’s agents are closer than Saul thinks, and the killing will soon begin. Jupiter War: Alan Saul is now part-human and part-machine, and our solar system isn't big enough to hold him. He craves the stars, but can't leave yet. His sister Var is trapped on Mars, on the wrong side of a rebellion, and Saul's human side won't let her die. He must leave Argus Station to stage a dangerous rescue -- but mutiny is brewing onboard, as Saul's robots make his crew feel increasingly redundant. Serene Galahad will do anything to prevent Saul's escape. Earth’s ruthless dictator hides her crimes from a cowed populace as she readies new warships for pursuit. She aims to crush her enemy in a terrifying display of interstellar violence. Meanwhile, The Scourge limps back to earth, its crew slaughtered, its mission to annihilate Saul a disaster. There are survivors, but while one seeks Galahad's death, Clay Ruger will negotiate for his life. Events build to a climax as Ruger holds humanity’s greatest prize -- seeds to rebuild a dying Earth. This stolen gene-bank data will come at a price, but what will Galahad pay for humanity’s future?

A Trilogy Reborn, is a title conjured by noted author James Blackthorne. If we have eyes to see the reader will notice a combination of Sagas that are bristling with adventure. The reader will experience real thrills; It's as if the magician uttered his magic words. The trilogy is broken down in a manner that the reader can take in several compelling themes set in exotic settings. The author succeeds in detaching a shadow of the moody black walls and provides us with an array of lively flesh and blood characters. Blackthorn's heart started beating again." I can't pick up what's going on these days," the sources said, swaying his head sadly," but I found a feeling something strange is behind it.In most cases the hero of the story has to fall out is usually the difficult path, the more upright style. He never experiences a quick death'. For example, in Leon's case, his beliefs are genuine. He's not just a wizard, but humanitarian. He believes if necessary, he must sacrifice himself on the cold slab of the heathen altar. In more than one instance, he was willing to perish by a blade he had honed, wielded by the very arm that had given strength skill and consciousness." "An intuitive feeling has risen in the world's heart today that somehow our lives are one." The prolific author spoke of an idea that he had envisioned remotely in his psyche. He envisioned the omniscient potent foe unsheathing his terrible anger and disappointment. . Blackthorne illustrated how there are no unrelated, warring factions, somewhere a splendid unity exists behind the apparent diversity. " We can reveal that hidden thread of being and purpose that seems to marry up the whole. Even the stars and galaxies of other worlds are destined to become part of one harmonious mass." For the moment, the author felt a sudden twinge of fear as his innards shifted violently. Along the spur of the moment, the fear was gone, replaced by a strong pulse of excitement.. "Why should he be afraid," he asked himself?" He could be likened to the characters in his books. James explained how long ago, he had readied himself for such exigencies. Blackthorne explained. "From an author's point of view, you generally do better if you're close to your character. Yet you don't desire to be quite as close as you would like to be from the viewpoint of building up your creativity.".Come meet the cast of exciting characters as they are involved in this Fine Fantasy firmly rooted, in reality, there's a strong focus on one of the leading characters called the Grand Wizard Leon Davith. It's common for Leon to join powers with his Golem son called Barson Wolfe. Blackstone translated his comments into velocity at times he requires the reader to stiffen in order to meet the shock. Still, no story is complete without including the feminine factions. Bards gal pal referred to as Quill, who is an alluring young sorceress. Meanwhile, she stood in the company of two beautiful ferries called Erin and Leda. Erin commented to Quill. " Our alibi's sound so good in theory, but in reality, what we experience is a different means of narrating the story." Leon nodded. However, Quill explained. I can't help the rumination of my thoughts." For a minute there was no response. Leda remarked, "my gut feeling informs me that this trip delivers a few glitches, is about more than just some ancient relic." " Stop that" Erin said. " I suffer a strange impression, whatever or wherever it is we're being summoned there." Leda's eyes opened full. " My curiosities got me., why are we summoned and for what person purpose?" Leon commented. " Simmer down ladies, it's best to catch some rest before the big day"

Her father is the owner of the Bank of Cheyenne and refuses to let her marry below her class. So Jim boldly departs his Wyoming farm in hot pursuit of the wealth that is his ticket to the love of his life. But conflict between miners and Indians heats up, and Jim returns home unsuccessful. How will he ever make Alyssa his bride? book two Dreams of Gold Trilogy When gold was discovered out West during the nineteenth century, men rushed from all parts of the globe to stake their claims. Fortunes were made and lost, families uprooted, and a continent shaped by men driven by dreams of gold. (end series header) Gold Discovered in the Black Hills! 1875. Jim Bannon is a young farmer, a fine Christian man in love with Alyssa Rose McGuire, the daughter of a wealthy banker in Cheyenne . Her father, Frank, wants her to marry a Christian, of course...but a wealthy Christian. So when the Black Hills of the Dakota Territory (and Sioux country) are opened for gold prospecting, Jim stakes a claim, hoping to strike it rich enough to win Alyssa’s hand with her father’s approval. Thousands of people converge on the Black Hills , seeking gold for everything from medical bills to oil investments. Jim realizes he’s in a mission field among the prospectors—and even the Sioux Indians. But will he ever find enough gold to satisfy Frank McGuire and marry his beloved Alyssa Rose? Story Behind the Book "We read books on the history of North America and found ourselves captivated with the three big gold rushes in the nineteenth century—the California Gold Rush of 1849, the Dakota Territory Black Hills Gold Rush of 1874, and the Yukon Gold Rush in Canada of 1896. Some gold seekers embraced success, delight, and happiness, but others faced failure, tragedy, and sorrow. In the Dreams of Gold series, we captivate our readers’ imaginations, as well as touch their hearts with both types of results in the gold seekers’ experiences—good and bad." —Al and JoAnna Lacy From the Trade Paperback edition.
